All event charts are calculated for BST (British Summer Time) using Astrogold for mobile. 'The favourites' are the team with the best overall bookmaker's odds for the match in question only.
Sweden v England
Overjoyed as this astrologer may be that England have got this far, this means we are again faced with a situation where the betting (in the United Kingdom, at least) is wildly skewed in favour of England, whilst in reality the recent form of both teams looks far more evenly matched. Sweden have won three of their last five matches, England have won two. However, England have only lost one of their five matches (the remaining two being draws) whilst Sweden have lost two. Historically, tournament clashes between these two teams result more often in draws than any other outcome, and overall their abilities on their eve of this Quarter final fixture seem evenly balanced. The only aspects or testimonies of any significance are Fortuna conjunct the 10th house cusp, (at such a wide orb, this is a weak testimony for the favourites, and by no means as significant as if the antiscion of Fortuna were placed there). A separating trine between Mercury (Lord 7) and the antiscion of Fortuna (at 09 Aries 18) provides an equally weak testimony for their rivals. The Moon makes no aspect of significance within the usual 5-6 degree orb; a warning to expect a close contest which could well be decided in extra time.
Russia v Croatia
If the promise of this contest chart is fulfilled this will be an eventful match, especially for Croatia (bookie's favourites at the time of writing). All the testimonies (and by implication, the action) is focussed on the 1st house cusp, which is conjunct both Fortuna's antiscion (06 Aquarius 02) and dispositor Mars (08 Aquarius 28); both strong testimonies for the favourites. Croatia are likely to dominate the game but Russia can be counted on to put up a strong and spirited defence, shown by Lord 4 Mercury's placement in the 7th house.
